    A few from Sundays shoot with Airic and Canoncan ... A deer (road kill) was fed to these wolves, for their weekly dinner. This is fair warning, as some of the images are graphic.

    It was a very amazing thing to watch, as this family of wolves destroyed this deer in about 15 minutes.

    1 1/15 sec.. on a tripod.. VR on

    Great series Ray.

    Have you ever listed out your workflow somewhere...especially as it pertains to sharpening? Whatever you are doing...is really working well for you. Of course good glass and technique are a big part of it.

    Wish I were there.

    I have always found Wolves to be one of my favorites when it comes to those kind of predators. :D

    Wonderful images, amazing animals, love wolves, along with birds of prey. Out of interest, what is the D200 like to work with, and how would you rate the D80 as an alternative if one cannot quite afford the D200?

    I'm with BigMike, aside from amazing photographic skill, how do you get such sharp pictures? I can't believe the detail in that raven's wings and how sharp it is. I know it is most important to get your subject's eyes in focus, but your shots are ridiculous.

    Keep up the good work.
